KATV owner pondering sale of TV properties

Posted By on Wed, May 1, 2013 at 9:23 AM

Local angle on this item in Politico. It quotes Robert Allbritton, CEO of Allbritton Communications, as saying he's considering the sale of his TV stations, but hanging onto Politico no matter what. A financial advisor is evaluating the idea.

Allbritton's properties include KATV, Channel 7, which Allbritton acquired in 1983. One outward sign of that purchase was the station's famous — infamous — multiple broadcast endorsements of George W. Bush for president in 2000. The station refused to provide time for an opposing viewpoint. The Allbritton family had many ties to the Bushes.

PS — Politico writer fawns over bossman Allbritton.
